About Us

The first annual Sicamous & Shuswap Lake Wild Mushroom & Food Festival was held in beautiful Sicamous, B.C. in 2005.

Participants enjoyed identifying and picking wild mushrooms, watching evening presentations, and attending workshops.

The 13th annual Fungi Festival is September 27th-30th, 2018.  This year we will be part of a larger Culture Days Festival in Sicamous.  That means more music, more food, more fun, plus all of the regular Fungi activities that everyone loves.  It is a dominant year for the Salmon Run, so long hikes will include a stop to view the Salmon spawning spectacle.

The Fungi Festival is dedicated to Peter Steiner.  His dedication and passion for the festival carried it through 10 years of comradery, learning and fun.

We hope the festival continues to grow and thrive as a legacy to his contribution to mushrooming and the community of Sicamous.

The Fungi Festival would also like to give special recognition to Joe Schmucks and George and Laurie.  We could not have resurrected the Festival without their support.
